love you always...

Hello!! Spring break is on for my boys and we are getting out and about to do a few things, but last night I managed to find some time to make something.  I have been doing a lot of watering with my ZIGs, but I decided that I needed to get out my watercolor pencils and see what I could do with them.  Along with the watercolor pencils I pulled out my set of Prisma pencils.  The watercoloring efforts were all fails, but I'm going to keep trying!  What I colored with my Prisma pencils turned out way better and I turned it into a card.  Last month I got several sets from Concord & 9th that included the set I used for my card, You Are Here.  That rose-heart image is just gorgeous and begging to be colored!!  I stamped the image on some Bristol cardstock with VersaFine Smoky Gray ink and started coloring.  When I finished I simply trimmed down the panel and adhered it to a kraft cardstock base.  The sentiment was embossed on vellum with white embossing powder and then trimmed out.  Rolled up glue dots were used to adhere the sentiments.  Finished with some pink Pretty Pink Posh sequins. I have a ways to go, but I really like how my coloring turned out!  There is still time so I will be adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft, smooth Bristol, Stamps:  Concord & 9th; Ink:  VersaFine, VersaMark; Coloring medium:  Prisma pencils; white embossing powder

Beautiful coloring, Rosemary--can see why you got that stamp set! I bought a blending pencil (just found out there is such a thing!), so need to see if I can use my color pencils now, even though they're mostly cheap ones. Have fun this week--hope you get some clear days!
